Abstract

Present days, environment is filled up with a large quantity of toxicants including heavy metals in dissimilar forms. Heavy metal pollution is a significant environmental problem and has its negative impact on human health and agriculture. Several methods already used to clean up the environment from these kinds of contaminants, but most of them are costly and difficult to get optimum results. Currently, phytoremediation is an effective and affordable technological solution used to extract or remove inactive metals and metal pollutants from contaminated soil and water. This technology is environmental friendly and potentially cost effective. This article reports about the mobility, bio-availability and Phytoremediational response of plant in heavy metals in Industrial contaminated soil of Mysuru City, additionally Translocation factor (TF) and Biological Concentration Factor (BCF) also carried to know the ability of the Spiracia oleracea L and Zeamays L.
